Question about Brother HL 5170DN Laser Printer

1 Answer

5170 DN What is the proper setting for the adjustable screw to the left side of the fixing unit, when the cover is removed from the back? This screw seems to be spring loaded, and was not fully tightened when I removed the covers for a good cleaning.

This screw is not to be set but to be tightened as every other screw.
We service a couple of hundreds of these printers at work and i've never heard one of our field engineers that adjusted this screw.
With my printer here both screws are firmly tightened, and no fusing problems or paperjams at all so...

Greetings

How do I clean the laser mirrors myself? is there a manual or video that can show me how. i don't have the money to pay to have it done. the cheapest quote i have gotten is way more than i can...


Fist you need confidence.. then only you try it.. no video/manual for this, because of its no suggestible. Read once again & once again understand it then try it..

Open back cover & side covers.. two boards you will found at back side left one is formatter & right one DC controller. remove both DC & formatter, mark the connectors where you removed.
Remove the plate where DC & formatter placed,after that only you will find the scanner assm.
Two screws only protected to scaner assm, mark them where you removed.
Scanner assm: While cleaning the scanner assm must be wear glows..to avoid finger prints.
Remove the scanner assm cover(two screws) & shutter. Observe two motors with four reflecting mirrors, clean the mirrors & engine reflector sides(a squared metal part which was rotates along with the motor) with ear buds
gently. ( ear buds are good cleaning method) while fixing the unit back ensure that seated properly.. fix back every thing & do calibration.. check the print quality, if you failed to fix the scanner unit in properly, you need to do entire things once again.. Good luck..

METHOD B
1. Remove the left and right hex-head screws
(one on each side) from the front corners
of the unit compartment
2. Remove the four hex-head screws (two on
each side) from the rear flanges of the unit
compartment cover. NOTE: You will need
a 24” hex-head socket extension with a
magnetic tip to remove these screws.
3. Lift the unit compartment cover up, and
pull it forward off the refrigerator.
REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall the
unit compartment cover, make sure that the
two unit compartment cover tabs slide under
the rear cover flange, as shown below. This will
provide the proper air flow.

I have been using Olympus Master 2.03 for a long time. I have the problem of it shutting down usually in edit mode. Is this problem fixed in OM2.2?


Remove the two screws on the right side of the camera (right as camera is facing away from you.)

Remove the screw from the top right side of the camera.

Remove two screws from left side of camera.

Remove the screw from the top left side of the camera.

Remove the screw that is just to the right of the viewfinder.

Pop up the flash.

Lift the top section of the casing off, with the following in mind... There are two spots where the casing interlocks: 1. Rear to the right of the viewfinder -- press in on that area to release it from the lower casing. 2. Front directly under the ME in MEGAPIXEL; press in on that as well.

Remove screw from rear side of tripod mount. (leave the front one)

CAREFULLY remove the screw from the viewfinder adjustment. The adjustment is very delicate and has two tiny plastic tabs that will shear off quite easily -- trust me because I broke mine. If you break yours, be sure to adjust it to the most convenient position (i.e. not macro) before reassembling.

REMOVE THE FLASH CARD!

At thie point, no screws impede the removal of the rear case. The flash card ejector switch, however, is a minor obstacle. It seems best to have it slid all the way to the left as you work the rear cover off (from right to left worked for me.)

Now follow the green ribbon cable from the Cancel/OK/4way switch up to the right of the zoom. Just to the right of the zoom, under that cable, is a screw hole that is more than likely EMPTY. It's not supposed to be. Find the tiny screw that goes in that hole. Either get rid of it, (not vital, IMHO) or if you want to put it back...

To replace the screw:

Remove the two screws holding the top LCD and power switch on.

Lift the rear of that assembly up to disengage its connector, and slide it back. Two LEDs protrude down from the front of it into the front casing, so be careful not to bend them.

Underneath is the socket for the ribbon for the OK/Cancel/4way. Slide it out. Now you have access to the screw hole.

Replace the screw.

Re-insert the ribbon. Make sure it is in all the way and straight.

Tile the top control board back into place, pressing it down into its socket.

At this point I inserted a battery and tested to make sure the rear and top controls still functioned. You may want to play it safe and not do this while all of the guts are exposed, but the risk is probably minimal. Do it at your own risk though.

Replace the two screws for the top control assembly.

Temporarily press the flash down and make sure the white switch at its rear is in the right place and won't get smashed when you reassemble!

Seat the compactflash ejector slide switch onto the bottom of the camera, making sure its points left, and that its two adjacent tabs straddle the metal tab on the CF slot. It's easiest to reassemble when it is slid left, so slide it there.

Replace the rear cover, tilting it on from left to right.

Insert a CF card and make sure the release switch works.

Make sure the hinge pin for the CF cover hasn't slid out, and that the cover snaps into place.

Replace its 2 long silver screws on right side of the rear cover.

Replace two shorter silver screws on left side of the rear cover.


Replace the longer silver tripod mount screw.

VERY CAREFULLY insert the viewfinder adjustment into the viewfinder, making sure its delicate tabs are in the slots of the viewfinder.
Reinstall the long black screw that holds it in place.
(If you break this, make sure to adjust the viewfinder to an optimal (infinity?) position before replacing the back cover.)

Replace the top cover while holding the flash release switch back.
Note the two points from earlier that snap together.

Test the flash release.

Replace the two screws on either side of the top cover and the one in the rear. These are all the same size.

Brothet HL-1870N gives Error E50


Hi,
For the Brother HL-1850/1870N printers, clearing the "Service Call Error E50" in the LED display simply requires depressing the "Go" and "Set" buttons simultaneously while turning on the power. Continue to depress the "Go" and "Set" buttons until the LED display shows "Go Test Mode". Release the "Go" and "Set" buttons, the depress the only "Go" button again and the printer will start normally.

If problem persists, let me know.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

E50 error on Brother HL6050DN. Page count was


Hi

Error E50 comes up on the printer when there is an issue with the fuser unit of the printer. It is either the fuser unit is faulty or fuser unit is not clean. This what you can do to get the error fixed--

All "left" and "rights" are when facing the front of the printer. Remove the electrical cord from the back of copier by pulling. Remove bottom tray. Remove the smaller tray that comes out the back that has a LTR/A4 lever. Open front of machine to take out toner and drum just to make it lighter. Leave open. Take off top cover (4 screws and two wire jacks to unplug). Remove screw on back right side near bottom. Remove screw on front left near bottom that holds left side cover. Remove screw on back left near bottom (it holds a piece in the back and the side cover). Slightly pull out that back, left plastic piece (it won't come out all the way yet) and wiggle things around to get the left side cover off. That back left piece that didn't come out all the way has a plastic *** holding it in. To be able to press that *** is why the side cover is removed. Press *** and pull the back left piece out while wiggling things around to get the 3 plastic pieces in the back to all come out. This exposes the fuser. Remove the two wire jack connections. Remove the two screws holding fuser in. One of those screws is big with a spring - don't worry, the spring stays in place. The other screw looks normal, but it is a little longer than the other screws so remember where you lay it. Find the 2 black wires on the fuser leading to the problem piece. Remove the single screw holding it in. Pull it out and clean the wire connections. Now put things back together.

And after this is done reset the printer by--

Switch the machine on. Wait until the yellow data light goes out. Now hold down the 'GO' button AND the '+' button together four about four seconds. The LCD panel will now display a 'RESET COMPONENT LIFE' message. Use the + and - keys to select the fuser unit, and reset it. Turn the printer off. Turn it on again and it will work. Now reset the drum counter , and also the toner cartridge counter in the same way.

Please accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

When changing the print cartridge, the rubber band did not break


I do not know what you mean by clear tape or sponge strip but if by ridged you mean what i think then yeah we are pretty much taking about the rubber band that moves the carriage.

So it got off, huh... it normally happens when someone pulls way too hard the cartridges, anyways, if it got loosen from the right side you need to remove all covers and scanning unit.

to do this please remove the screws on the back side and then remove the black front covers, they are set by pressure on (and some plastic nails) so i recommend you to use a flat screw driver and gently pull. look up for little triangular marks or the plastic nails, any good pressure point. once those black covers are removed, unscrew the screws (i dont know if that's the proper expression sorry) you see and proceed to remove the plastic covers, they should come out easily. then you might not need to remove the scanning unit IF you actually can set the band on again. It goes around a little gear you can actually move towards your left to avoid stretching the band more than needed. good luck!!
if you nee dto remove the scnaning unit please unplug everything on the left side before. should be at least two flat cables and a few others.

when you open the left cover you will see some green plastic things. If you pull these towards the left they will clean print heads and charge coronas.
If this does not fix the problem the you will have to remove the dev and drum units from the machine.
The print head sits on top of the drum unit and can be levered off with the three tabs gently lifted.
the entire print head can be remove once the black cover has been unhitched from the sides.
The print heads are not screwed in and what ever you do DO NOT TOUCH THE SCREWS on the print heads as they are only for density adjustment
